10:02 am
10:03 am
10:04 am
you know i am glad to come here today and i thought that i would introduce myself. >> and you can do that too, later thank you.
10:05 am
>> and okay, is there any other public comment on items again, related to the business of the entertainment commission, not just to introduce yourself? all right, seeing none i will close public comment. we will move on to item two which is the review and approval of the minutes from july, 15th, 2014, are there any changes, i do have one myself. i was present at that meeting and it was not commissioner hyde. >> is that true? >> it is true. >> july 15th. >> okay. >> and a piece of legislation
10:06 am
that was created, to cover the issues of two venues that were considered arcades that have the zoning issues, and so in that conversation, supervisors
10:07 am
breed's office, sort of expands the legislation to also include the changes to how the police code, looks at mechanical amusement device and obviously then, how we issue those. and there has been, and so it went to committee, and then, went out of committee in a really short time, like 24-hour period essentially and as a full board and in the committee, dramatic amount of changes and before i went on vacation, we had weeks and weeks of meetings of what we thought that the legislation was going to have and then the major in the committee and went right to the full board and so, they convinced the board members that this needs to slow down a bit and the changes that were kind of rushed through and needed more conversation and that did not work so well.
10:08 am
but, as it was mentioned to the board, and so the second reading is of the september second and in the meantime, last friday we were able to meet with supervisor breed and pretty much roll back to the original agreement so that we sfmgr, is going to be able to manage the mechanical devices via the limit. and at this point, and more than one. and so, there is one, and you can have it without a permit, but more than that, it will be permitted and they will be oversight and so that is the long and short of that. and hopefully in the interim between now and just recess and september, second which is the first full board meeting we will not have any more changes to the agreement that was made. and so cross your fingers on that. i wanted to just keep you up to date on the late night transportation and really, we sort of started to call it the
10:09 am
late night and early morning transportation plan. we had one full as a mentioned before, one full task force meeting and we have had the working group meetings and we are working on a survey and by and large, what this is, is a needs assessment that will then sort of yield a report at the end of the six months to the board of supervisors, pretty much to then, keep stepping forward, and in terms of what changes, you know, need to be made locally and then regionally. and so we have another meeting with the working group or the staff level tomorrow, and then, september tenth, i think, is the next task force meeting. and president tan is in the list, and above the working group and this body, you know, wants to move ideas forward through the president, you can do that. but, it is going well, and we are still on track and timely,
10:10 am
it was just great. i stepped in with the ongoing project, and they will cover me unless you have any questions, i don't have much else to tell you. again, i was out of town for quite some time. >> i have one question, on the mechanical amusement, does that impact us? >> it will, but at this point, again, based on agreement that we have, it will be a very small impact. >> okay. >> there is some part of the agreement is to wave some permit application fees but, the license fees are still going to be charged. and this is really the bulk of the ongoing income. >> do we get that money from the license? >> yeah, we get in quote from the busy air quotes for you and it is a general fund and we are
10:11 am
a general fund department and yes we get credit for those operating expenses. >> thank you. >> so i will turn it over. >> and i just had one. >> sorry. >> i just know that cohen's office was interested in becoming more involved in the late night and early morning transportation because she feels her neighborhood is really far impact. is there still time for us to have someone bring those concerns? >> yeah. >> i think absolutely. and ben is here, somewhere. >> yeah. >> and so, if we can note that, and then, there should be, yeah, i mean back from recess before the next meeting. so i don't see why that would be a problem. >> thanks. >> all right. >> you guys are all set. >> good evening commissioners. this past end of july, july 26,
10:12 am
the san francisco marathon was held on a sunday. everything we want off without a hitch. a couple of small stages and dj set ups throughout the city, and mostly in the south of market. and a couple in the dog patch. we had no complaints. and everything ended as scheduled. this past weekend, jordan and i stopped by the city center and after a meeting with staff a couple of months back. and we had recommended upgrade the camera system and recommended that they look into an id swiping capabilities at their door. the id has been put in place, and the upgrade of the camera system will be in place tomorrow. i was told. and we did get a call for service, and did get a call for service, this past weekend at closing and we are now waiting
10:13 am
on the incident report to come
10:14 am
weekends they have application form in hand and going to be sending that back this week, a brand new venue cabana opened and it is going to be kind of a bar and this is on the 9, toma and they actually do have a dj and i have a call into the owner to try to bring them into compliance. >> and just today, we did receive a report of a new after hours underground party at 586, 6th street and it is sort of near the highway on-ramp. and it is in the old fitness center, the window has been blacked out and i have put in a call to the city attorney to try to get some support from sfpd. to keep an eye on that and see if we can reach out to the property owner. >> and if there is no questions, i will pass it over
10:15 am
to jordan. >> i have a couple of questions, if you don't mind. i am sorry. you didn't bring, did you bring up the brick yard? >> i did not. >> i have a question for the staff. didn't we hear from the brick yard before? is this an old thing? i remember the brick yard coming before us like a million years ago, literally a million. >> it doesn't have a place in our entertainment permit and they are not zoned for it. >> i think that there is some. >> yeah, okay. >> this came about, recently and just because there was some advertising going on by a third party and then, you know, we did our what we do, and then, the brick yard did send me and i was out of town, and an e-mail and so it was all fine and it is all gone and it is canceled. >> okay. >> that is all. in ethat is great. and i just wanted to mention to
10:16 am
you that miss belequa i love the fact that you went and are having that promoters register. >> that is great. >> thank you for doing that. >> absolutely. it was a little bit of a concern, i believe on the back up of the old neighbors, that there was some new blood in town on mission street. so, i have encouraged the owners and managers there to get them registered and they have a couple of new buildings opening oup that street right around them and so we are going to try on *f to get everything nice and smooth. >> i appreciate that. >> thank you. >> okay, commissioners? >> expect to file a report. talk about a few issues, first i am going to talk about the bottom of the trails. basically really nothing to report on the regular patrols through the marina checking out the matrix and kt and east side and west on the fillmore, everything is good, when i have an issue with the sidewalks being too packed me and sean go
10:17 am
ahead and talk to them about that. so there is really nothing to report there, just business as usual. the same thing with polk street and the same thing with broad way and so everything looks good on those fronts. there is ongoing issue at harper and rye that i wanted to touch on. so, on the 18th or 19th, the 19th of july, me, sean and commissioner joseph went by, and we talked to harper and rye about closing the doors and there is complaints about noise getting out from the doors or whatever and we talked to them about that. and they did come in to compliance and talked to them at a security meeting at next week and there is new complaints about harper and i have been down there, and i passed by and the doors have been shut in compliance with the agreement that we made and i just want to note that because there are complaints coming through and i am not
10:18 am
sure, if it is fair to assume that they are in violation. i just wanted to point that out. moving on, sound tests i did a sound test for a place of entertainment permit and everything was good there and then, i have done random inspections, the last couple of weekends the 26th of july, i did the inspection and the east avenue and club, temple, vessel and i went by those venues too and everything checked out. and did an inspection on the 29th of july at super club and everything checked out. wrote a citation on the 19th of july to the pub and they have been having comedy shows or whatever and they are not
10:19 am
permit and they have been warned, inspector burke went by a few times and so we did site them and we wrote a notion of violation to a club by the name of region and they kept their door open and they have been warned several times. the only other issue is euro motor cars and they have underground club thing going on there from time-to-time and it is a fund-raiser thing or something. and so basically, they are claiming that it is a fund-raiser and we noticed drinking all sorts of things that the club operations and the issue with them was the loudness of the music and they turned the music down and they did come into compliance, and that is a legal part that is going on and we feel that you guys should know about it, any questions of me? >> just for the euro motorist or whatever it is, if they want to do a fund-raiser they have to get a one day permit from us and they can do a phone raiser,
10:20 am
and they can find the 501 c3, and pull the liquor license and they can serve booze but they really do need to get a one-day permit from us. so, if that happens, again, you tell them that they need to get a one-day permit, in advance, otherwise they could be shut down in the middle of their gig if they don't. >> that is exactly what i tell them. >> good. >> anything else? >> how are you liking the job? >> i am liking it a lot and it is a lot of fun and thes good to be here, doing the city business, with you all. >> that is great to hear. >> just one request, it is more administrative. i know that you are reading off of a sheet there yourself, about the incidents and inspections could you write that up and have it in the packets next time. >> definitely. >> thank you. >> appreciate it. >> is there any public comment on the staff report? seeing none, i will close public comment. we are going to move on to item
10:21 am
number 4, police department comments and questions, is there any member of the police department that is will be or interested in speaking? speak now or forever hold your peace. all right. we are going to move on then. to item 5. which is a hearing and possible action on our permit applications. so, and hand it over to the deputity director. >> good evening, commission, and so our first item is andrea minoo doing business as limbo and the applicant has asked to this to be continued until august 19th. >> i move based on the applicant's request that we continue limbo to august 19th. >> second. >> okay. on that motion. commissioner lee? >> yes. >> commissioner joseph? >> yes. >> hyde in >> aye. >> president tan. >> aye. >> the motion passes. >> all right, so the next one is jonathan rowe doing business
10:22 am
as the village at 969 market street, they are going to a place of entertainment. and it is a pretty extensive operation budget in your binder and the proof of their community out reach and also the recommendations from southern station with that and i will turn you over to mr. renne and the rest of the village team and the village people. you have a very extensive package and i am going to speak for a moment, on page 19, out reach and a lot of letters at the end, elaine will be up in a minute and discuss that a little more. i just like to say that at the time, it has been several months since we did the letter of intent and this is a rapidly evolving project. but on the exhibit a, i would
10:23 am
like to just orally amend it, this is primarily going to be a corporate event facility and there will be some nighttime entertainment activities and we have continued the extended hours permit to the call of the chair, just to give us a little time to get the operation going and improve ourselves and the neighborhood. and we will be back on any extended hours and so that should be struck from your mind at this moment. and the nighttime public events and the alcohol at the beginning will be managed by monarch nightclub from 6th and mission, and i think that you know that great track record in running a safe venue. the only other issue that we have seen the police permit and we have no problem with the police permits, however we will ask that it now states that ten a.m. until 2 a.m., every day, we would request that that be
10:24 am
amended to 8:00 a.m., specifically, but there are corporate breakfasts that come in if they have any kind of entertainment because they want to have a piano play and that would sort of not allow that. but in the meantime, i would like you to introduce elaine and she will tell you about the project. >> good evening, commissioners, please to meet you here tonight. i would like to introduce our team to myself, this is jonathan rowe and he is our ceo and founder of the village and to my right is tad and john wilson also in security intelligence specialists. and it is great to be here this evening and thank you very much for this opportunity to introduce you to the village, at 969 market. this is a fairly extensive operation, that we have proposed, and we have about
10:25 am
17,000 square feet of space on three different levels on market street and we are fork cussing predominantly on producing high profile events, corporate events as well as non-profit and fund-raisers. and we have several things going on, and i would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about specifically the target audience that we are appealing to and also the community out reach and those are the two things that i want to touch on and i will turn it over to tad as well to talk about monarch's operations and we are profiling this for the up scale audiences and we think that this is going to bring in a lot of good business in the area and to the retail operations, and the restaurants. most of our clients that john works with, john rowe works with as google, facebook, and
10:26 am
he has microsoft is one of his clients, we have a lot of actually his promotional materials are inside of your operation's plan there as well. and let's focus a little bit on the community out reach, which i know is yours over there and mr. hyde. and so definitely i don't want to short shift that. and i actually have spent a lot of time reaching out to the non-profits in the area as well as our community neighbors, and it has taken a bit of time to do this and we don't get necessarily, immediate results and so i have things come ng but i feel confident in terms of my conversations, i mean, we are presenting ourselves as good neighbors and that we want what they want. and we want to focus on the things that are their hot buttons like sound, crowd control, smoking in the neighborhood, and also, what we are bringing to the neighborhood. and so in terms of, you know,
10:27 am
the audience participation, and the types of people that will be around, and how they are going to be interacting with the crowds. so i reached out and i did a peer for the alliance for a better district six and i had a fairly good response, actually i feel good about it and they actually asked me to come back and i said that i would be most happy to come back and present to them and also, i have met with people and i have toured them in the facility and so they can get an idea of what we are about and i reached out to tracy who i knew from the urban solutions and she has come by and toured the facility. and also, i met with karin duruker over at central utah, sro collaborativive and met with her at her offices and toured her and we have a letter of support in the back of that binder. met with sham, and julie, i don't know her last night and she is the executive director and i think that she is creative director at counter pulse, and they are moving over to turk street and she also, and i toured them both in the
10:28 am
facility as well and urban solutions and ilean has been by and lisa today talking about the coffee cart situation in the front and i spoke with lion's ballet as well as judy young and i have left her a message with the youth development and the letters that you will see in the back are from central city, sro collaborativive and we also have one from the show dogs and aeg live and the war field and let me switch back, so that i know exactly what we have in the back here. we also have one from alene from urban solutions and she went an e-mail and also one from david, james, valobos, from the community leadership alliance. we have a couple of letters pending, from neighbors, because i know that was something that was one of sunny's hot button when we met her and there, we have 1009
10:29 am
howard and we have phillip who is a 30 year resident and so those are the two neighbors that we have reached out to and we have a few more that we are also expecting, as well as i talked to, reached out to the home skillet on 6th and market and farmer johns across the street from our office and so now that i have touched on those many things and i would like to introduce, tad cortel from monarch who can talk a little bit about our beverage plan and they are going to be doing all of our beverage events and producing and booking the public events. and so i will turn it over to him now and thank you very much. >> thank you. >> good evening, commissioners.
10:30 am
i hired to handle the private event and the public events as well. we are going to be bringing the expertise that we have over at monarch for all bar operations and utilizing that at the village. and pretty, you know, simple, i would encourage any questions that you all might have, regarding that. in addition, we will be producing in conjunction with the village, some public events as well. and once again, bringing the expertise that we have, not only have done at this point, countless, public or club events at monarch, but also having done, most recently a fairly large event at appex at sound factory which went really well. and so with that in mind, we are able to i think, bring our, healthy experience nd
